what if Rust used Bash syntax for opening and closing blocks
// horrors here
Esafnu is the goddess of memory safety, and every time you use an unsafe block you must invoke Her name, that She may lend you forgiveness and not make your code explode

I really wish computers were smart enough to be able to combine various unicode characters.
Like extending 👩❤️👩→ 👩❤️👩
Then we could have things like:
👩💻👸→ Tech Princess/Queen
👩💻🧚♀️→ Tech Fairy(!)
👩💻🐲→ Tech dragon(!!)

TIL "The proof is in the pudding" is... let me be diplomatic... the shortened form of "The proof of the pudding is in the eating."
That is, you can't tell how delicious the dark chocolate pudding covered with whipped cream and vanilla sugar is until you eat it.
Don't worry though, I'll volunteer to taste and take one for the team.

What's pretty neat: There's a category for speed running Zelda 1 Co-Op, with two people on one controller, and for doing the dungeons in reverse order (including killing Ganon first)
What's less neat: Some people apparently consider those less impressive than completing the game as fast as you can without restriction.

On the other hand, doing it the 'wrong' way, just pasting the string into controller works very easily.
Other people can't change it, but since the command line version works well, it's easy to just pass in file paths there.

Trying to do the "right thing" with C# view models and chtml is sure a pain in the butt.
Like, all I really want is to have a textarea that's contents are synced with a string. But however one is supposed to do that is a complete mystery to me.

I still remember the C'rrah version of that poem...
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray to Thal my soul to reap
If I should wake and see the morn'
I pray that I may sleep once more
...Or something like that. I forget how the last two lines originally rhymed x.x

From now on I'm going to call döner "Turkish burrito".
Also, I'm going to call burritos "Mexican Döner".

I'm just really disappointed in Tumblr, and really all social media. Like, first, how is nudity or porn on the same level as hate speech? And second, why is it that they can so effectively scrub porn out of their search results, but it's easy to find hate speech?
And, most of all, why are we (the collective population of the US), okay with this state of affairs?

My hobby: Spinning up emulators running the latest version of Android with Nexus 4 skins.
Never forget the Nexus 4.

Me: I'm glad I'm lucky and can just work without all the difficulties a lot of my (female) coworkers seem to have.
Also me: Don't look at the news. Or Twitter. Or Reddit outside of r/aww. Also Tumblr outside of our stream. Be careful of YouTube. Maybe look at Slack. Hmm... can we look at company chat today? Uh... maybe just my team's tech chat. That should be okay. *crickets* Okay, yeah that was fine. 💯

Nothing says WTF like Rydia bringing the "Package" to Mist to destroy it, and then having her comfort the distraught FuSoYa in Kaipo @.@

It's sometimes confusing.
I'm friends with so many introverts.
And I'm often really nervous around people.
But I need to be around people to be happy.
